When you visit a Bike to Work Day Pit Stop, you will be hosted by a community group who will offer free snacks and refreshments (while supplies last), which you can enjoy while they pump your tires or lube your chain. Each Pit Stop is unique, and some feature prize giveaways or live entertainment. Plan your route on Bike to Work Day to stop by a few Pit Stops and make the most of your day.
This year there is also a Pit Stop at The Forks that is open from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM (the time between the close of all other Pit Stops and the start of the BBQ at The Forks).
We strive to promote the bicycle as every day transportation. We advocate for improved cycling infrastructure, safe cycling conditions when sharing the road, active transportation, our health, our environment, and our pocket books. If you want to add your voice to ours and increase the volume of our message, pleaseregister for Bike to Work Day, even if you bike to work everyday, or can’t take advantage of all of the day’s activities. If you support cycling, we need your support.
Your last chance to register for Bike to Work Day is at one of the Pit Stops.
